K1 not connecting to PC

2012-03-20, 12:10 PM

All of the sudden my K1 cannot be "found" by my PC. I tried 2 machines to make sure it wasn't Windows issue. Also called our IT support. They determined it might be the cable. Since it appears that Lenovo doesn't sell spare data cables (!!!) Does  anyone have any other suggestions before I fly to China and steal one off the factory floor... (kidding)

If you want to connect to your PC to share files, you can try File Expert to transfer files.

I'm a newbie at the tablet thing. Is the file transfer you are suggesting an app, or something built into the K1?

Sorry klimardo, I didn't explain it very well.

 

Yes it's a free App you can get on Android market.

 

Once installed on your K1, you will be able to share files via FTP or your internet browser.

 

Go on the market, and look for File Expert, there's a video about this app.

Just double-checking - the Lenovo rep did make sure your USB debugging was turned on in Settings, right?

 

For wireless file transfer, I'll also recommend Astro File Manager, which I use. But there are many file manager apps in the Android Market that include the functionality to transfer files over WiFi or even Bluetooth.

I was speaking with our company IT, not Lenovo. I tried to find a place on the Lenovo site to speak with a tech, but couldn't find it. I did RTM and saw the USB debugging section. I turned it on and off and it made no difference in connecting with my PC. This did work before and I had not ever "clicked" or made any adjustments for the connection.

Thank you for your help and suggestions.

kilmardo,

When you plug the USB in was there any devices shown in the Device Manager? Any errors there? If there is, try to do a uninstallation of the driver on the Device Manager then do Scan for hardware change and see if it helps.
